Description 1794 1C Talbot/Howard XF45 NGC. Lettered Edge, Breen-1049, W-8720, R.4. The 1794-dated Fuld-3 Talbot, Allum & Lee cent obverse die is here paired with an undated reverse depicting a bust facing left with the inscription IOHN HOWARD F.R.S. PHILANTHROPIST surrounding. Howard, who lived from 1726 to 1790, was a prominent social reform figure who was well-known for his efforts toward the improvement of living conditions in prisons. Varieties of this mule are known with both plain and lettered edges, the latter being the more plentiful. This piece displays deep auburn-brown patina, smooth surfaces, and only light wear over the high points. Some minor lightness of strike is noted on the lower-central obverse. Ex: Eric P.
